|An Introduction to Heat Transport by Conduction and Fourier's Law - Patrick Bruskiewich|
This short paper is a non-calculus introduction to the theory of heat transport by conduction and to Fourier's Law. The paper includes seven examples and three questions for students at a first year university level. One of the examples looks at the Igloo as a practical winter structure.
Keywords: Heat Transport; heat conduction; heat flux; Fourier's Law; non-calculus; the electrical analogy to heat loss; the igloo; vapour barrier; Pythagoras Publsihing
|2.57 Nano-to-Macro Transport Processes Fall 2004 - MIT OCW|
This course provides parallel treatments of photons, electrons, phonons, and molecules as energy carriers, aiming at fundamental understanding and descriptive tools for energy and heat transport processes from nanoscale continuously to macroscale. Topics include the energy levels, the statistical behavior and internal energy, energy transport in the forms of waves and particles, scattering and heat generation processes, Boltzmann equation and derivation of classical laws, deviation from classica...
